        1. I wish you and iwata died in real life. Literally. I can’t wait till that sad excuse of a president dies. Hopefully it’s before the next gen of gaming!! :/

          1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

            And I can’t wait until I have your corpse as my specimen for further Nintendofication…

              1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis


                There is nothing wrong with racism, homophobes/haters, killing innocent people, enjoying misery etc etc…

                But there is something right in you commiting suicide though, just an advice…

                  1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

                    We can’t die, we are death themselves…

                    Once you die, I’ll have a special spot just for you…

                        1. If I only had a few neurons, then how am I big enough to use technology? EXPOSED go back to sucking the cancer and chromosomes out of iwatas dick.

                          1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

                            Exposed for getting butthurt with each comment you type…


                            1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

                              Exposed for running out of arguments that didn’t have any substance to begin with either…


                              1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

                                I just needed some entertainment while I ate but now I’m done eating and I’ll return to do more important matters…

                                Exposed for getting owned…

                        2. Yes it is…lets put it this way.

                          I HATE YOU, WISH YOU DIE NOSTALGIA_W. Wish you was never born asswhole! Your mama should have put you in a dumpster. You should have been left to rot in there.

                          Feel good yet? Should I continue?

                          OHHHHhhhh, but there is no harm for wishing of bad people to be dead…right? Iwata, bad? No, fact is…he must be doing something right to keep on making more money and be re elected as president of Nintendo. Bad people is what you are doing and saying…bad people is what I showed you in the video, BAD PEOPLE IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF GOING TO HELL AND BURN FOR ALL ETERNITY WHICH IF YOUR NOT CAREFUL FOR WHAT YOU DO AND SAY WILL END UP THERE!!!

                          Think about what you said…and if you continue to keep saying what you say then there is no hope for you to save what you got left as a human being.

                        3. This kind of trolling is horrible. This makes you even more of a worthless piece of shit to wish such things just to piss people off just because you find it entertaining. Enjoy rotting in hell if it exists.

                      1. Yo isn’t there a way to ban IPs from your site, Sickr ? Some people are just disgusting to read.

                    1. DRM, paywall, paying for free online AND has the same exact PC games except PC has superiority in visuals and free online play with minimum BS attached. There is no other reason for..Xbox to exist.

                      1. First off, Xbox has just as much DRM as PS. Second, the 360 has always had a more reliable online service since you pay for it. That’s the tradeoff and also they removed much of the paywall recently. Besides the PS4 is pay for online play now. If a game is on PC AND Xbox then it probably is on PS as well so that comment made no sense.

              1. Oh really? How many Wiius were sold this time last year? If the one is flopping then the wiiu must be falling down a flight of stairs. Also, you fanboys cry when an article is posted about something non nintendo. Yet you all comment about how much you hate the xbox, lol hypocritical fools. EXPOSED

                1. Vita? That joke is doing even worse and Ouya, $99 console for lower class citizens, is kicking Xbox One’s ass which is saying something. So who’s failing again?

                2. Still using that to damage control for your precious Xbone? >.< Go cry to sasori since he's the only one that's going to agree with that excuse.

            1. Damn. 3DS is GOD in Japan and Wii U is now moving up in the world while Sony needs to pull its weight and deliver some games soon also reviving Vita which I doubt would make any difference at this point. And how wonderful that I don’t see any BS Xbox brand of anything on the list. ^_^ Now this is the region that knows true gaming..except going full out on mobile. XP

            2. And eww…that POS Knack is on the top ten spot? XC I guess the Japanese have nothing good to play on PS4 so this is their last resort. How sad.

              1. I don’t see why we’re bashing Knack here. It may not be an amazing game, but I’d still give it a 6-7/10. It was a decently fun platformer from the looks of it. (Never played it)

            3. As long as the Shonen Jump game stays in the list I’m all set. That game is phenomenal and one of the best video games of all time. I’d rank it right up there with Budokai Tenkaichi 3 and Super Smash Bros

            4. Nintendo is dominating this list so far. I can hear Shuhei & sasori now. “Oh this doesn’t matter! Japan is a minor country so this means nothing!! Hahahahahaha!!!” Poor Sony fanboy & Microsoft fanboy. So delusional.

                            1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

                              You’re slowly but surely turning into a Sonyan as they are the ones that trolls all sites…

                            1. Actually no. I think the first time I met him was when I was defending Nintendo. That guy is hard to take down. Lol.
